It's here! Hive Power Up Day for October 1st, 2022

Just like I mentioned in my announcement post last month, I've been a total slacker when it comes to doing any blogging other than these Power Up Day posts. I'm still trying to find that real life/cyber life balance, especially now that our youngest has a new work schedule and I've now become her primary driver since we've been down to one car again since the beginning of the summer (yes, the same car that broke down on the highway right before Covid happened, which made getting it repaired beyond difficult & it continues to be the headache that keeps on giving, but I digress... 😜). And I actually have lots of things that I do every day on (or related to) Hive - stuff like curation, anti-abuse, chatting for hours and hours a bit on Discord, so I need to remember to prioritize commenting and posting here onchain a little better.

However, with November's #HiveBloPoMo (Hive Blog Posting Month) and #NaPodPoMo (National Podcast Post Month, hosted by @epodcaster) both looming on the horizon, I'm hoping to be less ghostlike, even though it would be rather fitting for this month! 😂

Now to the business at hand. While technically in my little corner of the world there's still just about 2 1/2 hours left of September (I'm posting this around 9:30pm EST), #HivePUD for October 1st 2022 has already arrived in other parts of the world. If you want a super cool way to check if it's officially in your area according to UTC time (which is how the Hive Buzz badges are determined), be sure to check out the Countdown Timer on the hivebuzz.me site (under the green "Power Up" tab), courtesy of the awesomesauce team at @hivebuzz!

HivePUD TL;DR

  • If you want to qualify for the AMAZING Hive Power Up Day badge(s), your power up must happen during the 24 hours of October 1st 2022 according to UTC time.

and/or

  • If you want to qualify for the #HivePUD prize pool, your power up and post must happen (according to criteria listed below) during the hours of October 1st 2022, your local time.

 

AND PLEASE NOTE:

I did some tweaking of the 4 traditional HivePUD posts a year ago last month, and back in April 2022 I decided to tweak a bit more by combining the usual first two posts (Announcement & Welcome to HivePUD) into this one that I publish around the first few hours of the start of the first each month. In addition, I'll do some extra signal boosting of the "HivePUD is coming" posts done by others instead, as it seems like it will be the best way to spread the word. 😊

And in July 2022, I decided to tweak the rules a bit, for the first time in forever - be sure to check them out.

 

Now, for the basic Power Up Day details...

 
 

What is HivePUD?

Hive Power Up Day happens on the first of every month. Those who are able to, take this time to power up some Hive, and/or cancel their power downs and pause trading/selling for the 24 hour span of the day.

If you'd like more in depth information about Power Up Day, please check out this post from July 2021.

 
 

What are the rules to win prizes for HivePUD?

UPDATED As of July 2022

The requirements are:

  1. Your reputation must be above 39 and below 70 and your account must be in good standing with the community.
  2. Your total HIVE Power (before the 1st) must be more than 100 and less than 8000.
  3. You must power up at least 10 Hive on October 1st (and must NOT be powering down).
  4. You must write a post about your power up on October 1st with the tag #HivePUD (International) or #HPUD (Hispanic) as one of your first 5 tags (tagging only in the body of the post doesn't count).

 
To be included in the winners list, you must meet all four requirements above. The order of the list (first place, second place, and so on) will be determined by the biggest PERCENTAGE of Hive powered up, not necessarily the most Hive powered up.

And to make it clear what's changed about the rules, I've bolded the two bits in rules #1 and #3. I think it's pretty self-explanatory why I've added those in, but please feel free to shout out if you any questions about it.

The headache that keeps on giving! I can understand that. Hope you have been doing good otherwise. I also understanding the daily blogging and offline life that keeps you from accomplishing that.

I'm powering up a small amount today to participate.

Take care.

I did my power up, but I had problems with the light and with the connection and I did not have time to do it at the indicated time, but the important thing is that I contributed my support to the power up. Next month I hope not to have problems with the connection.
I wish you happy dreams, a big hug! @traciyork

I almost completely missed this one and feel as though I let the side down so sorry for not being more active in my support of it because I love the vibe and the intention behind it. :/

Was on the go for almost the entire day, but I managed to get a tiny bit involved in the final hour... or possibly a few minutes late. It was that close to deadline as I watched the countdown ticking, trying to check for typos. (There are bound to be a few but it's the intention, right?) 😊

I hope it went well for you and I'm sure you need a bit of a rest so I'll catch you later, here and everywhere and hopefully definitely on the next one! ❣️

Thank you so much for this guide. I am enlightened and I was able to make my entry being my first HivePUD in the blockchain. So happy to enjoy the fun! Have a nice time.
